STYLE ADVICE: Girls night out. What should I wear with these black shorts?

Posted on: July 2, 2012

QUESTION: I have a girls night out in the diary… spa day and then out for dinner/dancing in the evening. I have some black shorts that I’m considering wearing (for the evening) but have only worn them previously with thick black tights. As it’s summer and my pins aren’t in too bad a shape (spray tan will help!) I’m thinking I might be brave and go bare legged with heels but not sure what kind of top to put with them … any ideas? P.S. these are the shorts:

ANSWER: Sounds like the perfect night out. Your shorts are very chic. If you have a look at your Dressipi Must Haves in your Fashion FIngerprint you will see what style clothes suit your body shape and why. For you it’s all about softening your broad shoulders. With your legs on display all the attention will be drawn away from your shoulders to your pins! So let’s not distract from that and keep things simpler and a bit more covered up up top.

1. Tuxedo style blazer : Firstly, depending on the weather you could create a cool tuxedo style jacket-and-shorts combo with a tailored jacket in a neutral shade or black.

2. Printed Whistles shirt 
A simple style like a shirt or blouse gives a bit of stylish volume to your waist-sculpting shorts. Why not go for an animal print like this silk blouse from Whistles or this shirt from Zara.

3. Vivienne Westwood Anglomania: Westwood does some great evening tops that would look perfect with a pair of jeans too. The draped cowl neck will flatter your shoulders.

4. J by Jasper Conran: This piece is similar to the above style – only cheaper. It would look ultra-chic paired with a black jacket and your shorts.

5. J by Jasper Conran blue drape top : Your favourite colour is blue, and this draped front top will sit quite happily on its own with your shorts and a pair of killer heels. Have a fabulous night out…Natalie x

My favourite is the blue top.

Just had a look at your Fashion Fingerprint, it would be for you. Style it with a a great pair of jeans, killer heels and a tailored jacket and you’re ready for drinks with friends…

…I meant to say: “it would be PERFECT for you.”
